I’m in the Know

raid-repair-companyI know that the month is coming to an end very quickly. I really have only so much time left at this job and I have to make sure that I can get as much done as possible in order to prepare for the oncoming lay off. I have already set up backups all over so that we don’t have to go through situation where we require a HP RAID repair, which is important because the last time we need one it basically killed the organization for couple of weeks. I guess that is going to happen to almost any company that as a catastrophic raid failure, but I can say that we deathly were prepared for it. I don’t know how much money we lost that day, but I can sense that there is another round of layoffs coming. At least I’ve already polished up my resume and I know what’s going to happen over the next few weeks. Many of the people at our company don’t.

Looking for Raid Data Recovery Information

One of the things that is very difficult to find on the web is any real raid data recovery information. This is probably because of the fact that a failed rate is so uncommon compared to other computer problems. Plus, raid servers are typically corporate in general, and most regular users don’t run them at home. It doesn’t really make sense to run a raid server if you are playing Halo, as an example, but it does make a lot of sense if you have a full on CRM system set up.

I wonder if there are any raid recovery blogs out there, because I would like to know more about being able to repair a raid. I’m not holding my breath, though, because it looks like this is a very niche scenario that only a few data recovery engineers really have any experience with. I’m sure that it’s just better to contact a professional about things like this.

I Can’t Wait for It

For now, I only have two more weeks to go and then I can finally take my yearly vacation. I know that a lot of Americans are afraid to leave their jobs because of the fact that they may not come back to one, but I am not that kind of person. I recognize that vacations have to be taken and much like Europeans, I tend to make the best of my time off. I think right now I really need some stress relief because we had a lot of server issue lately that I could not even fix if I tried. I had to call a RAID repair company about five times in the past couple of weeks, and I think they’re probably getting tired of talking to me. But, the quality of our hardware was always a little bit suspect, and I think that are server room is way too hot for the processing environment.

Should’ve Just Called for Raid Repair

I’ve always felt that I have a pretty unique job when it comes to IT administration. Most of my work can be done from home and I can typically kep in touch with most users via chat. I do you think that there is a little bit of determination and the that is involved in a job like this, but I think that I have it covered overall. This job has been pretty problem free over the past couple of months, with the exception of the time when we had a Microsoft exchange server failure. That was definitely a tough time.

I think I ended up spinning my wheels on the fix for the exchange server and I really should’ve just called a exchange RAID repair company to start with. While I was panicking, I could have been putting the time to good use and getting that server recovered immediately. But, that’s the kind of thing that happens when you try to do your own raid data recovery.
